BIRDS


DIVING BARN SWALLOWS



Barn swallows are normally associated with large buildings or barns.  A beaver pond has become a favorite spot for these
very small birds to frequent.  They are small, fast and aggressive birds and they can and do dive into water to get bugs and small fish.

While visiting WAC during the late spring and early summer, I was fortunate to have the opportunity to photograph
many barn swallows diving and scooping insects.  They move so fast that mostly only shots taken at 1/1600 - 1/2000 are successful.
Most captures occur just at and after dusk, so stopped wide open and high ISO is required just to catch them in flight.
It is almost impossible to track them with a long lens.  After much experimenting, I devised a method of approach.
They fly alone or in formation with high speed winging, climbing and diving.  I found that they are also very territorial.
Following are several images that document their flying and diving habits.
